Mr. Obama’s powerful sympathies for the Islamic world explain much of his foreign policy - apologizing for American behavior in the Middle East, appeasing Iran, engaging in long-term nation-building in Afghanistan, abandoning Iraq, supporting the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, empowering radical Islamists in Libya, backing the disastrous Arab Spring and the relentless undermining of Israel. In short,

Mr. Obama is the true protege of Mr. Wright: an anti-colonial, anti-Western radical leftist who seeks to use U.S. power in the service of the Arab street.

Furthermore, Mr. Wright says Mr. Obama possessed an “Islamic background” and despite his conversion to Christianity has never abandoned his Muslim roots. In short, Mr. Wright appears to be confirming what I have argued for years: Mr. Obama is a cultural Muslim whose Christianity is deeply tied to black liberation theology - the belief that America and the West have an evil, imperialist civilization bent on oppressing the Third World.

This is when the media use to report.

I've heard Wright speak on the radio about this very thing a few months back in an interview.

If there really was apologizing and appeasing you might have something but everything asserted in this thread has been debunked by fact checkers.

This is just another despirate thread.

Some threads just drip of desperation. This is one of them.

Rev. Wright is so 2008.
You are not getting a 2008 do-over, jt. The attempt at a do-over has been beaten to death over the past 4 years, and it isn't happening. This junk didn't work in 2009, 2010, or 2011, and it's not working in 2012. Give it up. Or don't, and continued to be get slapped around for your indulgence. The past has passed. It is foolish to keep trying the same old failures.

Its funny how you use long term nation building in Afghanistan and abandoning Iraq as examples of Obama's "powerful sympathies for the Islamic world." Aren't those the exact opposite actions, after all we are leaving Iraq so that we are no longer engaging in long term nation building.

So what is the opposite of anti-Colonalist; wouldn't that be pro-Colonalist? Wouldn't that be someone who would be in favor of imperialism. The United States definitely has engaged in imperialism, just ask the people of the Philippines.

I would think that most Americans would be opposed to Colonialism and Imperialism.

Wow a Christianity that is based on the belief that one group of people shouldn't be oppressing another group of people. Pretty radical stuff.

LOL, all you hear from the left is it's Bush's fault and for 4 years. Harry Reid wants to attack religion and omg, don't dare bring up something like Rev Wright and Obama which is hushed up by the media. Each day I am more convinced that the government purposely dummied down the kids because they will grow up and vote.

Apart from the right-wing psychosis that Obama has brought radical ideas to the nation, Obama has proven over the last four years that he supports the type of government that we have already had for a long time.

What this campaign has proven is that the real radicals are the Republicans that want to bring us back to a time when there was no unemployment insurance; no Medicare; no Social Security; and no Medicaid. Too bad if you are old and not rich, you can't afford a nursing home.

The voters have reacted. Instead of this being a rejection of Obama, as the GOP assumed, voters have finally worked up the nerve to stand squarely for things that the GOP would eliminate.
